This arch is one of two that frame the entrances to the 1800 acre Longview Farm Estate of Kansas City lumber baron, Henry Long. Starting in 1913 he built a mansion and 50 other buildings with 2,000 workers in 18 months. The farm has since been broken up into various parcels including a college campus and a recreational lake. A major development, New Longview, necessitated the relocation of an arch. We picked the arch up and relocated it to a still prominent, but safer location and restored it to its original condition.
